Coaches’ Association All-Star Game to be played Saturday

A handful of local 5A high school football players have one more game left in them.

The Coastal Bend Coaches’ Association All-Star Game will be held Saturday night, with four VISD players and three from Calhoun set to represent their teams. East linebacker Noah Bueno will join West offensive linemen Noah Nelson, Tim Prickett, and Kadrian Gonzales as the selections from VISD. For Calhoun, Sylias Montgomery, Leo Madera and Miguel Valadez will suit up in the exhibition.

“It’s a great experience, “said Bueno. “It was a great honor to be chosen and it’s a cool experience to be able to play with some of the competitors I went against this season.”

Nelson echoed the sentiment.

“It’s amazing,” Nelson said. “I would’ve never thought that I’d get picked to plan in an All-Star game.”

The All-Star Game will be played at Buccaneer Stadium in Corpus, with kickoff set for 7 pm on Saturday.
